    Fondest memory: In june 2003. Pope John Paul 2th visited Rijeka.
    I have never seen so many people in Belveder and in front of the residence where he stayed, like those days.
    Ceremony had been watched by 100000 people; many of them spent all night on Delta just to be closer when Pope Wojtyla comes.

    Gradski toranj
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The City Clock Tower, which was erected upon the former sea-gateway into the fortified city, dominates the main pedestrian area of the town called Korzo. The front of the tower reveals the several Baroque phases with a richly decorated portal.
    The tower is flanked by early-classicist palaces, built in the late 18th century after destructions of the city walls.

    Receding City

    by roadnottaken Written Jul 10, 2004
    Rijeka as seen from the sea

    Favorite thing: This is a shot of Rijeka as it slowly disappears on the horizon. Taken from a ferry vessel called 'Dubrvonik' (headed for a city of the same name).

    Fondest memory: Unfortunately, the fondest memory was leaving it. I say this because the boat trip was spectacular.

    Hilltop View

    by roadnottaken Written Jul 6, 2004
    A view of Rijeka hills.

    Favorite thing: We had snuck into an apartment building hoping to get a better peek at the harbour area. Instead, we got a view of the hilltop residential neighbourhoods. It seems like this would be a nice place to live.

    Port City

    by roadnottaken Written Jul 6, 2004
    Rijeka's busy port streets

    Favorite thing: Rijeka is a charming port city. It reminds me a lot of Odessa, which is a busy port in my home country (Ukraine). In this photo, you can see "Dubrovnik", a vessel owned by Jadrolinijia (Bullet Line) in the distance. Docked in the harbour, it looked more like an oceangoing ship than a sea ferry.

    Fondest memory: I recommend strolling in the harbour and the adjoining hills. I did not get to see much more than that because I had a ferry to catch. The Adriatic Sea route between Rijeka and Dubrovnik (overnight, 20 hours) was spectacular and very inexpensive!

    The Capuchin Church

    by croisbeauty Updated May 23, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes

    Favorite thing: The project of the church was devised mainly by C. Budinich, known by his theoretical research into the Gothic heritage. In this spirit he conceive the building in Venetian Gothic style, inappropriate to Rijeka's tradition, more readily exposed the northern influence.
    The construction started in the early 1900s, but extended through several decades. It has remained unfinished, in fact, because the front was to be completed by a bell-beacon tower, according to the original design.

    The Capuchin Church

    The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes

    Favorite thing: The Capucin Church of Our Lady of Lourdes is two-storey Neo-Gothic building finished in 1935 and designed by K. Budinic. Upon his pilgrimage to Lourdes, Bernardin Skrivanic, superior of Rijeka Capuchin monastery, decided to erect in Rijeka a representative building, hoping it would become a new centre of pilgrimage.
    This church is favourite motive of Rijeka postcards.

    Fondest memory: The Capuchin church is located on the Zabica Square, named after a long time disappeared fountain.

    Karolina Rijecka

    Favorite thing: The palace, so called "Karolina Rijecka", is situated right opposite to the City Clock Tower. Once it was Royal Hotel but nowadays it was turned into the department sore.
    The upper-floor facades of the building is decorated by floral ornaments, while ground and mezzanine floors are of the contemporary iron construction.

    The City Clock Tower - gateway

    by croisbeauty Updated May 23, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Vrata Gradskog tornja

    Favorite thing: Above the Baroque gateway, designed by Michelazzio, there are the relieves of the two emperors, Leopold I, who gave to Rijeka the armour in 1659 and Charles VI, who in 1719 proclaimed the town a free port together with Trieste.
    Below the clock lies a high relief of the city coat of arms, with two eagles whose heads are turned in the same direction, which is a heraldic curiosity.
